I am doing a project to modify the Linux kernel. So I followed the tutorial

Build Kernels the Ubuntu Way section.

By the way, I am using the ubuntu server version for this project.

However, after I type $ sudo make-kpkg kernel-image

and built the kernel. I tried to look for the deb package. I search the
whole computer and can't find something like

I have been working on this problem for 2 days and still didn't figure out
how to install the kernel.

So I know basically, I need to copy something to the /boot and update the
grub config file. On my linux source root directory, there is a vmlinux ~
171M I don't know if this is useful. But nothing in /boot is that larger,
other like /boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-12 is 4.6M.

There are also /arch/x86/boot/vmlinuz.bin 4.5M /arch/x86/boot/bzImage 4.5M

How do I rename the kernel and install it and update the grub.cfg?

Thanks a lot!
